The Complexities of Importing into Guam

Guam is an increasingly popular Pacific Island export destination. In 2019 Guam was recorded as the number 206 in total exports, the number 175 in total imports and the number null most complex economy according to the Economic Complexity Index (ECI).

The technology industry in Guam is incredibly fast-growing, with local companies making a name for themselves on the international stage. There has also been an increase in large foreign companies investing in this small island. This expansion means Guam is now considered a telecommunications hub for the future.

As with many Pacific Islands, Guam places restrictions on cargo size, particularly for air freight. It is also preferable to use a courier service rather than a freight forwarder when importing into Guam.
